Warming Up White Bedding

All of our beds have white bedding.

Some of them have quilts folded at the end of the bed 

but they look a little summery.

That is fine for most of the year because our warm weather lasts a long time around here 

but it does get cold.
In fact our temps can dip down into the single digits. 
There is no below zero down here so generally our winter is mild and beautiful. 

I warm up the beds with comforters, throws

and blankets.
We've collected some great blankets over the years.

This vintage green one with hand embroidered pine trees is my favorite. Bill and I found it at a cute antique shop in Clifton, Texas. 

We have some cute needlepoint pillows that have been picked up here and there. 
I'll usually stitch up some plaid pillows to go with them.

I've started working on the beds for this winter. 
We've got new blankets to show you.
If our weather last week is any indication we'll need them.


  1. They all looks so pretty. Great way to warm up whites.

  2. Your green wool blanket is perfect for folding at the end of a bed. And your needlepoint pillow is so pretty against the plaid pillows you made! I need to gather up all our extra blankets because we'll be needing them when our family stays during Thanksgiving. The forecast is for wickedly cold weather. Brrrrrrrr!!

  3. I love the white bedding and having pretty blankets around. Very nice!

  4. That's how we do it too! I love white bedding and different things piled on top. It's so versatile and pretty.
